It had been a full 2 weeks between the previous lesson and this one but, to my surprise, I hadn’t forgotten everything. In fact I’m starting to get the hang of the mechanics of driving, the things you need to learn to do automatically so you can pay attention to everything else that is going on. I’m getting there, Slow progress is still progress!
We also started parking today, which is a lot harder than just driving. My brain has a lot of trouble figuring out which way to turn the wheel at which point, especially when going in reverse. But, I got it right on my own a couple times going forward and once going back. So here too there is definitely progress, it’s just slow.
